Re: The Bigotry of gun controllers

As an aside, I know one of the permit holders in California. His CCW is the most ridiculous looking thing I've ever seen. It's literally a typewritten, laminated sheet of paper cut with scissors. It looks like a six year old made it. No wait, that's impossible. Six year olds wouldn't know how to us...

Re: House Majority Whip Shot

One of the stories had this quote from Rep. Mo Brooks.
"We had nothing but baseball bats to fight back against a rifle with,"
That should certainly set up a conversation.

Re: Where to begin with a HAM radio?

Just ordered this one and a USB programming cable. The description says it has an "improved" antenna, so I didn't order another one until I get an idea how well this one that comes with it works. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00MAULSOK?ref%5F=oh%5Faui%5Fdetailpage%5Fo01%5Fs00&redirect=true&psc...

Re: Where to begin with a HAM radio?

I recently passed my technician exam and barely missed passing extra. I mainly used two sites and an android app for studying.

Re: Can 560 be resurrected?

The Governor could add anything to a special session. I can't recall any sessions recently where a gun bill was part of the governor's agenda.

Re: Bills Still Alive as of the evening of 5/23

I got an email from the SREC reporting on legislative deadlines and certain bills. The following gun-related bills are said still to be a priority. But they don't say the ones in House Calendars have a realistic chance. The email seems to be a way to make us think they're on top of things. SB 16 Ni...

Re: Krogers signage question

So I went to my local Kroger today and they have posted a sign that states the government code chapter 411. I am curious why they need that sign up? It's probably a simple answer that I know but can't remember, it just got posted recently. Was it the sign below? TABC was issuing that sign for a sho...

The state charges should be dropped if everything with her LTC is in order. She will likely get a civil fine from TSA in the $2k-10k range.

Re: 2017 Houston Rodeo

As long as your're not going to the "sporting event", carry. At the Fannin entrance, avoid the metal detectors with the helpful but misguided volunteers, and go find the cops that are usually in the golf cart near the vehicle entrance. "Hi sir, I will not be entering the sporting event premises jus...

Re: 2017 Houston Rodeo

Went last night. Both 30.06 and 30.07 posted at ticket booths. San Antonio was the same way. I just carried on. No wanding or pat downs there. They're wanding in Houston, but doing a poor job. Their "security" team never wands feet/boots from what I've seen. I stuck mine in my boot and used my knif...

Re: Harris County Precint 5 Park - Bear Creek

Doesn't the newly passed H.R. 2028 (Law No. 114-254) cover CHL carry on ACOE land? I think I read that this will allow it...

Re: Is Brazos County pulling a fast one?

I am wondering, what Court Buildings in the State are not posted? Might be easier for folks to post Court Buildings that are not posted. Coryell and Bell County are. Even the Coryell and Bell County annex's are posted 30.06/30.07. Shoot even the Municipal building in Copperas Cove is posted. I have...

Re: American Airlines - checked baggage handgun

TSA takes personal responsibility for that bag with the gun. If someone steals it there will be heck to pay with TSA. It wouldn't look good for them to lose a gun by theft from an airliner they are charged to protect especially after taking custody of the bag. Tex How does TSA take custody of the b...
